Bioshock remasters could be incoming

Bioshock has been outed on a classification set, suggesting that all three games to date could be set to be re-released

The Bioshock Collection has resurfaced, with a listing on the Brazilian Advistory Rating board site suggesting a game with that title is 'no suitable for minors under 18.'

While it's not great news for young people (sorry!) for the rest of us this is further confirmation of a re-release of all three titles in the series, hopefully in some kind of remastered form. It would be the first time these games have appeared on PS4 and Xbox One, though we're also hearing some of them are in the works for backwards compatability on Microsoft's console.

The Bioshock series has been one of the most influential first person shooters around since it debuted back in 2007. With incredible graphics and world building, as well as a top notch story, the games have really stood the test of time and that's even with Bioshock Infinite which basically became an ultraviolent madcap shooter. It would be fun to see these titles again, especially in an even prettier form but its interesting to note that the release has also been earmarked for the PS3 and Xbox 360, suggesting we might not be getting a full on HD reissue.

There's no official word on The Bioshock Collection yet but when we know you will.
